There’s something global about More Than A Thousand (MTAT): was born in Portugal, lived in London, records in the USA and Sweden, sings in English and plays universal. MTAT mix of grinding and alternative metal helped make them one of the most popular Portuguese bands in the socalled EMO explosion of the late 00’s. But even more helpful was their attention-grabbing shows: the band’s performances are raw, dark and uptight, like an exploding hurricane. Add to that a lyrical preoccupation with darkness and human loss and you’ll find MTAT’s motto. Formed in late 2001 the band already released 4 full length albums and gained a lot of popularity due to the fact that they did several tours all over Europe as a headliner and supported major acts like Metallica, Mastodon, Papa Roach, Incubus amongst many others. The brand new album “Vol.5 – Lost At Home” shows that this band is constantly growing. The right sound was done by well-known producer Henrik Udd (In Flames, Opeth, Bring Me The Horizon and many others) who mixed the songs at Studio Fredman / Sweden.

So far the promo talk, as I didn't knew this one & great to see their international roots! The music is far as far as I can judge simply hard and heavy, straight forward and technically speaking more than ok!I enjoyed the album, but somehow can't find anymore words to write the review. It's a great package with a nice mix between harsh and clean voice. Maybe they need more balance between the songs, ad a balad, I don't know. It feels a bit too much of the same (but high quality). Sepultura managed to catch me better than these guys, but i'm pretty sure that more fans will say I'm wrong and give them a higher chance!
